Free Replacement for damaged PS Vita

19 Replies 1,908 Views Created 27-05-2012
Okay, so I love my vita more than anything, I'm never off it, I really look after it and have a case on it, my little brother peeled my screen protector off and yesterday my girlfriend put my vita in her bag, the screen got lightly scratched but quite a lot and its really annoyed/upset me because I don't even want the Vita now that it looks like this. Is there anyway of getting it replaced for free?

I wouldnt think you would be able to get it replaced for nothing, ring Sony for a quote....

nope.

otherwise sony would have to replace lots of them.

buy a new one or man-up and deal with it.

Re: Free Replacement for damaged PS Vita

I dropped my iPhone 4 last year and apple replaced it for free there and then, without question when i took it in, they claim the vita is robust but i don't think they are a cOuple of people i know have dents in theirs so they cant be as robust as they claim!

Not likely I'm afraid as at then end of the day it was your own fault and not a defect or fault that occurred that was beyond your control.

Apple use to do that on a case by case basis. The official li e now is they won't anymore as far too many people were taking advantage of it. Regardless of how robust it is if the user is at fault regards faults or damage the company has no obligation to replace or repair for free. I've owned a lot of devices over the years including several smart phones, tablets, hand held consoles and I've never scratched or damaged any of them.

You could try a screen protector. (not trying to be funny) It may hide the scratches if they are really light because it will change the way light is reflected from the screen.

Re: Free Replacement for damaged PS Vita

Now that so many of us own expensive portable gadgets such as iPhones, Samsung Galaxy phones and tablets, PS Vitas and so on having home insurance (With additional accident cover) is pretty much essential these days
